Have you exhausted US records and ascertained the names of his emigrant
siblings? Were their given names those found on the CTI website records?
Hope this helps; am responding directly to the List as your message did not

I'm looking for ancestry of James Guthrie. He & his brothers left Tyrone
County, Ireland for America in 1790's. I'm looking for more information on
them. Any ideas where I can dig more about them. I looked up on Ancestry.com,
& county courthouse, I only found little information. Hope someone in Tyrone
County in Ireland can help.
